This is a wonderfully friendly, family run Italian restaurant. For nearly 20 years they have prepared excellent pizzas and basic hearty Italian dishes. House wines at affordable prices make this a great place to bring friends. Not a lot of space so reserve or dine a little earlier when possible. Both a cozy downstairs and small balcony level keep everyone... More

This is a place for pizza lovers just off the main square. We also love the Calzone Classico. As the sign on the wall says, "Amigos de pizza se encuentran aqui" Enjoy!

We have been enjoying La Grotto for more than 20 years. It’s a small, quaint restaurant on Cuadrante street, behind La Parroquia. The food, service & ambiance are all great. My kids always order pizza - among the best in San Miguel. Their pizzas have all kinds of tantalizing options for toppings. My favorite dish is the Monte Bianco salad,... More

Great pizza, to be sure...and there is a secret sauce that make it special. This is a family run business and those folks are wonderful, friendly, and welcoming. You have to look for the flags, and the sign cause this place is literally, a hole in the wall and can be easily missed. The full menu is enticing...Italiano/European food lovingly... More

I have been walking past La Grotta for a number of years thinking whatever is cooking smells delicious! Finally my husband and I went after Attencion wrote an article about them. OMGosh WE LOVED IT! It's teeny tiny but worth climbing the spiral steps to the second floor where you are above the traffic on Cuadrante. The food and pizza... More

Two years ago we visited La Grotta and had a disappointing experience. We went back tonight and had a wonderful time. We tried some of the new dishes. The new menu has some of the traditional dishes (including the Chicken roll with Spinach) but there is a new Rack of Lamb which is remarkable. The dish has five good sized... More

This is a reliable spot for delicious Italian pastas and brick-oven pizzas. We've tried it twice and both times the food was just delicious, served hot. It's small and cozy and a fun spot for an informal meal with friends. I recommend it, and we'll return.
